manual says to use only rechargeable NiMH batteries. Does it matter what mAh size , 2300, 2500, etc
I didn't see any mention of NiMH only in the current online manual. I am a little confused on the actual usage time from the batteries.
Here are a few quotes here regarding the batteries...
Height: 223mm (8.78 in)
Depth (front to back): 182mm (7.17 in)
Width: 70mm (2.76 in)
Weight (without gimbal/batteries): 200g (7.05 oz)
Angle Control Range (Pitch): 30° to -85°
Required Batteries: 2850mAh Energizer® 8x 1.5V AA Batteries (Sold Separately)
Runtime: 48-64 minutes (depending on usage)"
STEP 2) Install 8x AA Batteries
The use of rechargeable batteries is strongly recommended. Alkaline batteries only support the device to work 15 minutes.
I made a mistake it was not in manual but on artery lid on steady grip where it says "Rechargeable NiMH AA Batteries ONLY!" What page in Manual are those quotes on? I have a brand new Q500 4K thanks

Thanks not sure how I missed it so I have lots of Duracell copper top AA so I guess I will go out tomorrow and get those particular Energizers, does it make a difference in which type of battery you use other than runtime?I have been flying DJI Phatoms for two years and the difference between the two is amazing Yuneec is far better in every way. Thi
I would recommend rechargeable AA batteries. In the long run they will save you money.
The recommended Energizer is here - http://www.amazon.com/Energizer-Size-Alkaline-Battery-Product/dp/B00V5HJH6U
So for $7 more you can get many, many charges on them.
Thanks for all the help got it to work. Can you explain what the pitch follow button does and what exactly is pitch follow
Pitch Follow function allows the gimbal camera to track SteadyGrip in pitch direction.
1) The default status of SteadyGrip is normal status without Pitch Follow.
2) When SteadyGrip is in Pitch Follow status, the gimbal camera tracks SteadyGrip in pitch direction, and the gimbal pitch control roller wheel on SteadyGrip is disabled.
To Enter Pitch Follow:
Press Pitch Follow Button on the top of the SteadyGrip to enter Pitch Follow Function. The green LED Status Indicator on top will start blinking instead of being solid when in Pitch Follow mode.
To Exit Pitch Follow:
Press Pitch Follow Button to exit.
Using your current stock of non-rechargeable batteries doesn't mean it's going to damage the SteadyGrip, It's just that it will run longer with rechargeable batteries per charge and it's better for the environment, Correct? Make the switch once it's time to purchase new batteries.
I have iPhone 6s Plus it works fine just takes a really long time to connect
Get an iPad.
Try to contact @Yuneec_Usa here on the forum or call/email Yuneec directly.
I also have problems with steadygrip. On my phone (Mootorola Moto G 3gen.) I only see black screen, and no way to connect to the camera. I like the kopter, but I guess will return to the store.
Also, on my first fly test, the 1080 video, result in freezing and some kind off loop anomaly. The 4k video was fine.
I also have problems with my I phone.the app.seams to crash all the time
It works fine with my Iphone 6Splus. I had a Samsung Galaxy note and it would not work.
Hi, I have a Note Edge and found if I connect to WiFi first and then turn the CGO app on after it works.
Well...this is a sollution for those device where the GCO show up in wi-fi list.
In my case, the GCO don't even show up.
And I try it all.
HI, I can not get the wifi on anything, is it a special wifi???? android and iphone no luck..
I made a mod on my one with the lipo battery. It works like a charm, and I squize much more time out of it.
